Thank goodness .......

Al took K to the dr yesterday - she doesn't have glandular fever !!! What a relief ! Am not sure what it was - dr said must have just been a viral thing (isn't that what they all say when they don't know something ????)
Anyway, today is here - I am at work trying frantically to get everything done - tax returns, reports run for May accounts and then sent out to campuses, Fiji accounts sorted out - and all those other good things that go with going on leave for two weeks - I keep saying to them that I will be back as I am sure there are things they are asking for which could wait !!!!!! At least we aren't working at Coles tonight so that is a bonus - I might even be able to get a chance to pack !!!!!!
My folks arrive back from their little holiday to Cairns so can't wait to see them tonight - mind you, it won't be for long as we also have to catch up with a guy getting back from Taiwan tonight to hopefully find out some more info re the contract for Al. Looks like he will be going at this stage - not something I want to think about just yet.
Yesterday was just a shocking day all round - everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong - work was just dreadful - the good news was about K so that was great. Foodwise - again, as it seems to be the only thing I have control over, I kept control over it although there were a few occasions when the snack machine was really shouting out my name !!!!! And, the biscuits (in the shops because if they had been in the office or the house I would definitely have answered) were just begging to be eaten - why is it that when things are a little difficult we think that if we eat something it will make it all better ??? Sort of like when your child cries you kiss the sore and say "There there it will be fine" - at least I have come to the realisation that if I eat when things are difficult, it just makes them more difficult because then I have to try to lose the excess weight I put on by eating when I didn't need to - I guess I should be proud of that !

TFTD : We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens within us, how we can take it, what we can do with it, and that is what really counts in the end.

Yes it seems too easy for everything to be put down to a "virus" these days. Good news it's not glandular fever though! Have a great weekend!

Great to hear that K does not have glandular fever but I hope she still gets better, quick smart. It's not fun being sick at all. My partner is in bed sick too now :-(

Everyone at battle stations! It sounds so manic at your place at the moment. I hope you can relax enough to enjoy your holiday. But you have been doing so weel with your eating. You're a legend! Good luck with everything else.

I'm glad your daughter's okay :)

You say "why is it that when things are a little difficult we think that if we eat something it will make it all better ?"

I think because for a short while, it does make things better. You get to take a little short break from your problems and do something you enjoy. It's really relaxing, honestly. But, like you said, it only hurts more in the long run. I think it helps to have a subsitute, a quick walk outside to get away from work for 5 or 10 minutes, a hot bath, anything except food or cigarettes! Because, really those little breaks do help us collect our thoughts.
